Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 11

In right triangle PTO  By using Pythagoras theorem,

PO2 = OT2 + TP

⇒ 102 = 62 + TP

⇒  TP = 100 - 36

⇒  TP = 64

⇒  TP  = 8

Practice Test: Circles - Question 12

Two circle touch each other externally at C and AB is a common tangent to the circles. Then, ∠ACB =

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 12

Let P be a point on AB such that, PC is at right angles to the Line Joining the centers of the circles.

Note that, PC is a common tangent to both circles.

This is because tangent is perpendicular to radius at point of contact for any circle.

let ∠PAC= α and ∠PBC = β.

PA = PC [lengths of the tangents from an external point C]

In a triangle CAP, ∠PAC = ∠ACP = α

similarly PB = CP and ∠PCB = ∠CBP = β

now in the triangle ACB,

∠CAB + ∠CBA + ∠ACB = 180°   [sum of the interior angles in a triangle]

α + β + (α + β) = 180°   (Since ∠ACB = ∠ACP + ∠PCB = α + β.

2α + 2β = 180°

α + β = 90°

∴ ∠ACB = α + β = 90°

Practice Test: Circles - Question 13

ABC is a right angled triangle, right angled at B such that BC = 6 cm and AB = 8 cm. A circle with centre O is inscribed in ΔABC. The radius of the circle is

Practice Test: Circles - Question 14

PQ is a tangent drawn from a point P to a circle with centre O and QOR is a diameter of the circle such that ∠POR = 120°, then ∠OPQ is

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 14

Given- PQ is a tangent to a circle with centre O at Q. QOR is a diameter of the given circle so that ∠POR=120o. To find out- ∠OPQ=?
Solution- QOR is a diameter.
∴OQ is a radius through the point of contact Q of the tangent PQ. ∴∠OQP=90o since the radius through the point  of contact of a tangent to a circle is perpendicular  to the tangent.∴∠OPQ+∠OQP=120o
(external angles of a triangle=sum of the internal opposite angles )
∴∠OPQ = 120− 90= 30o.

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 16

Let P be the external point and PA and PB be the tangents and OA and OB be the radii.
So OP is the hypotenuse=8cm
Applying Pythagoras theorem,
H= P+ B2
64 = AP+ 36
AP =

Practice Test: Circles - Question 17

Practice Test: Circles - Question 19

If the diagonals of a cyclic quadrilateral are equal, then the quadrilateral is

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 19

Let ABCD be a cyclic quadrilateral having diagonals BD and AC, intersecting each other at point O.

(Consider BD as a chord)

∠BCD = 180− 90 = 90
(Considering AC as a chord)

90+ ∠ABC = 180
∠ABC = 90

Each interior angle of a cyclic quadrilateral is of 90.Hence it is a rectangle.

Practice Test: Circles - Question 20

The quadrilateral formed by angle bisectors of a cyclic quadrilateral is a:

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 20

To prove: PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral.

Proof: In △ARB, we have

1/2∠A + 1/2∠B + ∠R = 180°   ....(i)   (Since, AR, BR are bisectors of ∠A and ∠B)

In △DPC, we have

1/2∠D + 1/2∠C +  ∠P = 180°  ....(ii)   (Since, DP,CP are bisectors of ∠D and ∠C respectively)

1/2∠A + 1/2∠B + ∠R + 1/2∠D + 1/2∠C + ∠P = 180° + 180°

∠P + ∠R = 360° - 1/2(∠A  + ∠B + ∠C  + ∠D)

∠P + ∠R = 360° - 1/2 x 360° = 360° - 180°

⇒ ∠P + ∠R = 180°

As the sum of a pair of opposite angles of quadrilateral PQRS is 180°. Therefore, quadrilateral PQRS is cyclic.

Find the value of ∠DCE :

Practice Test: Circles - Question 23

In the given figure, PQ is the tangent of the circle. Line segment PR intersects the circle at N and R. PQ = 15 cm, PR = 25 cm, find PN:

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 23

Given, PQ = 15 cm

PR = 25 cm

We know that, PQ² = PN × PR
15² = PN × 25
225 = PN × 25
PN = 9

Practice Test: Circles - Question 24

In the given figure, there are two circles with the centres O and O' touching each other internally at P. Tangents TQ and TP are drawn to the larger circle and tangents TP and TR are drawn to the smaller circle. Find TQ : TR

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Circles - Question 24

As the lengths of tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal,

For the circle with center O, TQ = TP ….(i)

For the circle with center O′, TR = TP ….(ii)

Dividing equation (i) by (ii), we get,

TQ : TR = 1 : 1
